Maybe you’ve heard the expression that you can eat whatever you want as long as you exercise. Or that if you eat 2500 calories per day then you also have to make sure you burn what you get in. Of course, it sounds like a simple match or logical math. But it’s not that simple in the fold!
Humans are addicted to food and diet is something that we think about daily. We all ask ourselves the dinner food question, what are we eating today? The meal we cook is about how much time we have for cooking. How we feel at the moment, if we are stressed, sad, or happy then the evening’s goals also depend on what we eat. There are so many factors involved in getting any good food into us that once we land in bed at night we realize that we may have eaten too much or even too little during the day.
So to be able to think about our diet and what we put into us, we also need to know the goal of changing dietary habits. Perhaps we have an underlying disease, such as diabetes or high blood pressure. Then it may be good to refrain from specific nutrients. But otherwise, the body feels good from eating a balanced and energizing diet. It should be versatile, contain all the nutrients, and give the body the extra vitamins it needs to cope with our busy lives.
But if you want to lose weight, use exercise as a means to get in shape. Then it may be good to review the intake of calories. Or limit the intake of carbohydrates. But of course, you can’t listen to someone else’s advice.
So is common sense, to have one day a week or month when you indulge in whatever you want. Cook food cooked from scratch, like home cooking, and feel energetic and ready to exercise or live life.
